Today is Penguin Awareness Day, the greatest idea for a holiday ever (or at least for a January holiday). What better way to celebrate than with a bunch of Penguin magic cards. Wait, what’s that? There is only one card in all in Magic that references penguins, and it is an Unhinged card with ugly as hell artwork? Ahh, guano! Well, to make up for it, we’ve mocked up a bunch of penguin cards we designed for what a future Disney Magic: the Gathering set would look like, and posted them here. Since these were mostly made prior to the summer of 2015, and much of it dates back to 2004, there is a lot of islandwalk and protection from blue here. Still, what do you expect from penguins?
Something we at Icygeek have been toying with for the past 12-13 years is creating a Disney Magic: the Gathering set. Our first version was done in 2004, but due to a bad website, it was not published until 2005. Earlier this year at our friends at Superfriends Universe we did a second version, trying to make it friendlier to newbies and Wizards of the Coast, but it was rushed and the quality showed. Still, this is a labor of love, and so we present our first five cards we would have if we did a Disney: the Gathering set…a cycle of Donald Duck cards. (Hey, we amphibious avians have to stick together.)
